Mine has one too.

I downloaded the driver for the SnapScan 1212P WITHOUT power switch.
It installs a scandrv.sys. This one as well contains CodeView debug
information. I inspected it with "strings -a".

A small list of interesting strings:

On the other hand Sane 1.0.15 contains:
plustek-pp_p9636.c:static UShort P17ColorModeRegister[] = {
plustek-pp_p9636.c:static UShort P518ColorModeRegister[] = {
plustek-pp_p9636.c:static UShort P535ColorModeRegister[] = {
plustek-pp_p9636.c:static UShort P539ColorModeRegister[] = {
plustek-pp_p9636.c:static UShort P56ColorModeRegister[] = {
plustek-pp_p9636.c:static UShort P97ColorModeRegister[] = {
plustek-pp_detect.c:            DBG( DBG_LOW, "Adjust for 98001 ASIC\n");

So, well, I think this is enough to assume that the AGFA SnapScan 1212P
without power switch is a rebranded Plustek.
